When the Only Place to Look is Up

Suffering isn’t designed by God to destroy our faith but to intensify it. That will never happen, however, if we fail to look beyond the pain to the purpose of our loving heavenly Father. His design is to knock out from underneath us every false prop so that we might rely wholly on Him. His aim is to create in us such desperation that we have nowhere else to look but to His promises and abiding presence.” –Sam Storms, To the One Who Conquers: 50 Daily Meditations on the Seven Letters of Revelation 2-3
